Albert Haynesworth honors brother with memorial motorcycle ride

Albert Haynesworth took part in a memorial motorcycle ride to honor his brother, Lance McCoy, on Sunday in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

"He wanted to have his final ride," his father, Bobby McCoy said in an interview with Nashville's Channel 5 (video here).

McCoy, who will be buried Tuesday in Hartsville, S.C., was killed Thursday when his motorcycle collided with a car.

"That was my heart. I don't know, I am just hurting," McCoy said.

Bobby McCoy also recalled his final words to his 23-year-old son: "I said 'Lance, slow it down before somebody scrape you off the pavement.' He said 'I got it.' I said 'Lance, be careful' and that was the last time I talked to my son."

Haynesworth had no comment at the ride.

Another 'self-inflicted " tragedy. driving ANY type of vehicle on a public road at 100mph is just plain stupid. Sorry the result of this stupidity was so tragic, but who is really to blame ? Yes, in this case , the victim is to blame. Forest Gump had it right, "Stupid is as stupid does."

@jmsbh
The main problem with the comments section is it allows for people to enter a finished statement instantly without the help of an editor to stop them from posting something classless and heartless.
I agree Lance McCoy’s actions were wrong, defenseless, and if his actions put others in danger, stupid.
Jmsbh, Lance McCoy was one of the victims of the accident. The others are the ones that love him.
Your words were classless and you should be embarrassed.
You are right that” stupid is as stupid does”.

Hopefully that will void Haynesworth's contract and we can cut him.
